>>2680018Because you asked ;^)
>>2680024>OSB topDaringAlso, tripfag, gtfo.
>>2680026Yea yea built it during Covid right as I bought a $400k house and then bought a miter saw and a million other things for the house, so I didn’t feel like spending $80 on a sheet of plywood.It’s fuckin halfway coated with paint and primer and polyurethane anyway so the surface is smooth, plus it will get replaced eventually when I drill enough holes into it.
>>2680027>all that spaceDope
>>2680028Very niceHow'd you make your shekels?
>>2680027You building that garage?

>>2680035How would you recommend a young diy nigga to start hustling?
>>2680043See >>2680040Also when you get confident enough with some sort of work, you can ask for money. I just made a couple doll hairs working on a boomer’s Cobra replica this afternoon. And tomorrow I go to work for the shareholders.

>>2680032that's a basement
>>2680079>>2680095Both options as well
>freestanding rectangleswhere is the diagonal supportare these even used
>>2680018Any urban basement dwellers? 1/3
>>2680163Security surveillance included2/3
>>2680134I have mine all boxed out with the shelves and the surface, once those go in it’s not a wobbly rectangle anymore. Plus it’s bolted to the wall on 2 sides.
>>2680137the property is sloped, the front of the basement is underground the back is a walkout
>>2680031$400k is chump change when you are not a NEET.

>>2680018Looks like you made a 2x4 from a 2x6 using 100 year old hand planes and a japanese plywood saw and rounded the ends with a ryobi dremel-class router.Good work, what’s next month’s project?
>>2680163That workbench has seen some shit.
>>2680220Ehh it aint cheap, but all of South Florida got so fucking expensive after New York and New Jersey and Chicago scared tons of people away with retarded covid measures.Literally all through 2021-2022, people from New York were buying 3/2 houses for $800k without even seeing them, and those houses were worth ~$400k a couple years before.I actually think I got a good price on this house because the lady didn’t want to sell to investors. Was appraised for like $30k or $40k more than I paid. But there were absolute shitholes on the market early last year and people were asking $300k, like 2/1’s with no garage and 1000sq.ft, I have no idea who was actually buying and what they settled on, maybe some Air BnB’s, but they weren’t even like on the beach. Any 3/2 that wasn’t in the hood for under half a million was getting tons of offers as soon as it was posted.My last house that I was renting, the owners were greedy fucks and tried to ask >$750k, they didn’t even want to negotiate, it was on the market in 2016 for under $400k and they ended up renting because nobody was willing to pay that much back then. So the house sat vacant for a year and they finally sold for nearly $200k less than what they were trying to get last year.I would’ve made an offer on that if they were reasonable, especially after paying them ~$2500/mo in rent for 6 years. But I’m kinda glad I got out because it needed work and insurance premiums in Florida are real high and some flood zones shifted on a map so that neighborhood is paying $$$$. Next door neighbor told me he’s paying $9k/yr in insurance on a house he bought for like $405k in 2019 or 2020.Goddamn I don’t miss the snow tho.
>>2680291Pic is actually from when I built it in 2014

>>2680508pretty slick>>2680292those are goign to be sliding dovetails. im still learning
>>2680508I love the upcycled car speakers. I've done that too
>>2680099What timber are you using for that strip plank vessel? also is that a steam box I spot, or is it something else?
>>2681159The boat was constructed using eastern white cedar, I'm replacing damaged planks with red cedar because I can't get white it where I am. Waterproofing will come from a canvas skin that is then painted. It's a fairly traditional canoe design. And yes, that is a steam box!Currently using an old Coleman for boiling the water but Naphtha is bloody expensive. I'll probably look into propane next year
>>2681471It looks great! That will look fantastic on the water. Wooden boats always have so much character!Have you tried using a wallpaper steamer? I knew a few boat builders that used to use them to produce steam for their steam boxes. The only thing I think could be an issue with this option is voltage if you're in North America. I'm Australian and our outlets output 240v where as the US is 120v, so it may take far longer to properly reach the temperature you need to really be a viable option. Even still it might be something worth looking into, doubt it would be too hard to alter the current box to give it a try. Here's an example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2lJHdWJZhI&ab_channel=Wood%26Wild
>>2681572Yeah, I have looked into them and tried one at my old university. It worked quite well for hardwoods like oak, but for some reason it wasn't working well for cedar. It's a beautiful but somewhat temperamental wood, everything has to be right when working with it. I think the wallpaper steamer would work for what I'm doing but I'd probably need to be running 2 of them at the same time. At that point it's not the voltage that's the problem, it's that I only have 15amps in my garage. The gas burner is nice because it gets HOT and can produce a massive volume of steam, a full kettle runs about 1/2 hour and I can use the second burner to biol some water up so there's no break in steaming
>>2681637Dang, well that throws that option out the window. Yeah, the fellas I knew used to use two at once like you mention.The old fellas might have had an easier time steaming because they would mostly use a timber called Huon Pine, costs an arm and a leg, pretty oily wood, so I think that it may have lent itself to being easily steamed. Pic related is one of their boats, gunnels and ribs are Celary Top, sheer plank is King Billy, and I'm fairly certain the rest is Huon Pine. Fair winds and following seas. Always good to meet someone keen on wooden boats, great things, aside from the maintenance ahahaha
Not my finest work but it'll do
>>2681702Nice, this is the style I was thinking of using. Seems simple and sturdy. I like the storage you added on the end.I was planning to make mine into an L-shape, screwed into a corner. I'm thinking if I do that I won't need a center support leg and the front will be completely open. I'd probably add a half-depth shelf near the wall so I still get some under-bench storage.
>>2680018My garage is taken up by too many pr/o/jects and tools, so I just built some new benches for my basement last week. They suck ass and are not square because I am a piss poor carpenter, but it's nice to have the extra space for audio repair stuff. I'm sure they'll be piled high with shit in no time.
>>2683558Goddammit, phone posting. I'm not in Australia.
how could you choose to use OSB as the work surface? i remember working with it as a kid and after so many fucking splinters i vowed off the stuff.
>>2683563Sand it and paint it with truck bed liner
>>2683563Something like this >>2683573Shit’s going to get covered in paint and polyurethane and grease and oil even if you don’t paint it.Also there’s a rough side and fairly smooth side, so put the smooth(er) side up and it won’t be too bad.
This free dining table was supposed to be my new workbench but it got caught up in transit propping up a few mirrors until my sister gets done cleaning up some stupid shit
>>2683640Delicate work only huh?
>>2683949I got a concrete floor for the hard shit
>>2684094The problem with benchtop tools… you want them all but you also want a bench to work on shit.I’ve been putting off a drill press for that very reason.
>>2684095this is the biggest shed I could get that would not require a permit and all such of additional bullshit. I have a large concrete area in the area around the shed and do any large work out there.in the summer it's WAY to hot to work in (for mare than an hour or to) even with AC.
>>2684098looks a lot like my shed setup. i had the same size limitation before needing a permit. i had a single hose ac unit like yours for my shed which work poorly in small rooms. i even converted it to an dual hose but it still sucked. i put a hole in the wall and converted to a window unit and it's much better. i should have gone bigger though as the heat load from summer + power tools can still overwhelm it.
>>2685231you have to insulated the hoses on 2 hose systems. makes a huge distance.
my connection is slow and i could only see thumbnails so i thought most of this thread was people posting vomit on their floor
